Julián Andrés Kmet (born 21 November 1977) is an Argentine retired footballer who played as a midfielder.

He amassed Argentine Primera División totals of 190 games and 22 goals during 11 seasons, representing mainly Lanús.

Football career[edit]

Born in Lanús, Buenos Aires Province of Ukrainian descent,[1] Kmet scored a career-best ten goals in 36 Primera División games for local Club Atlético Lanús in the 1997–98 season, aged only 20. He was subsequently signed as a promising young talent by Sporting Clube de Portugal, but failed to adjust overall and, after two loans to his former club, left in early 2000 amidst accusations of discrimination.[2][3][4][5]

From 2001 to late 2006, Kmet appeared for several teams in his country's top flight. After that, he signed with Club Ferro Carril Oeste in the Primera B Nacional, retiring at 31 after a few months in Cyprus with APOP Kinyras FC.
